4th International Conference on
Natural Products Utilization

From Plants to Pharmacy Shelf

29 May - 01 June 2019
Albena resort, Bulgaria

Dear Colleagues:
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am honored to invite you joining us for the 4th International Conference on Natural Products Utilization: from Plants to Pharmacy Shelf (ICNPU-2019), which will take place on 29 May – 01 June 2019.
The overwhelming response received, after the ICNPU-2013 (230 participants from 40 different countries), ICNPU-2015 (330 attendees/50 countries) and ICNPU-2017 (350 participants/60 countries), along with the numerous enquiries about the forth issue of it made us confident in our abilities to organize it again.
ICNPU meetings traditionally attempt to cover the wide spectrum of application of plants with special emphasis on the sustainable use of natural products, emerging -omics platforms and recent trends in (ethno)pharmacology, toxicology, molecular biology and biotechnology. ICNPU-2019 will feature plenary sessions, oral presentations and two poster sessions. World-renowned experts will share the latest developments in the field. A number of awards for the young colleagues, among us, will be ensured.
As previously, we anticipate two special issues to be published with selected presentations from ICNPU-2019. At this time, under ICNPU-2019 special issues, we plan to host mostly research articles. Discussions with some major journals on the field are now undergoing and an update will soon come up on the ICNPU homepage.
In addition to the scientific program, rich social activities will be offered, including welcome reception, conference dinner and tour to historical monuments, besides the podium for informal discussions and networking opportunities.
We look forward to hosting you @ ICNPU-2019!

Milen I. Georgiev, PhD
Chair of the Organizing Committee
